+ The +1 Records signing caught the eye of DIY, Highsnobiety and i-D, as well as featuring in Apple Music’s ‘Best of the Week’ and Spotify’s Young and Free/Sunshowers playlists.
Following the runaway success of, ‘Night Walk’, Gold Fir satisfies the demand for soulful sassy vibes with ‘Sirens’, the follow up single out via +1 Records.
The emerging London duo saw a huge response to their debut offering, which was accompanied by a vibrant 2D animated video produced by Rejjie Snow collaborator Jack Brown. With repeat plays across BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, 6 Music, Triple J and Beats 1, as well as support online from i-D, DIY, Hunger, London In Stereo and a run in the Hype Machine popular chart, Spotify, Apple Music, Vevo and Bandcamp also came out in support of ‘Night Walk’ with heavy playlisting and homepage features alike.
New track ‘Sirens’ demonstrates the duo’s fierce ingenuity. A track “about welcoming different aspects of yourself to the dance floor” – elements of pop and 80’s devil-may-care are all present, and delivered in a neat package as memorable as it is infectious.
Simply known as James and Mabel, the pair’s eccentric, soulful sound is inspired by their favorite places, friends and films. Gold Fir has most recently adapted their unique sound for live shows at KOKO and Birthdays, and are now gearing up to present three sound installations for the Victoria & Albert Museum on the 28th November. With plans for a debut EP early in 2018, the duo prove now more than ever that genre is meaningless, but the right music will always be full of soul.
